average. uninteresting. not worht the $12 at Trader Joe's.
Decent sauvignon blanc--light, crisp and herbal.
Served chilled. Light bodied and crisp with good acidity. Floral and pear aromas/flavors were the things that immediately jumped out at me. I could see this being a really refreshing summer wine.
Pear, green apple, melon, lightly floral nose; crisp and reasonably well-balanced with light citrus fruit on the palate. Paired well with shrimp. Totally decent.

An awfully nice white wine made even more attractive by its value price. Shows cool-climate notes of grass and citrus, but the blend includes grapes from warmer areas that contribute fig and peach. The result is a complex, dry and crisp sipper that leaves the palate refreshed.
Tutti-fruity S. Blanc here, with figgy-apple flavors and a dollop of sugar. Very clean and bright, and good acidity balances out the sweetness. This polished wine will be good by itself, or with lamb or salmon with chutney.
This would show well with food. Intense, with lemon, grass, herbal and onion notes.
From the cooler regions of northern Sonoma County, deep, rich citrus and pear flavors meld together nicely with a light herbal note. The finish is clean and fresh with moderate acid levels. Enjoy during the early evening hours of a breezy summer day.
The vintage started off with a very dry spring, which tended to make for smaller clusters, smaller berries, and less canopy overall. The growing season was about as perfect as you would want, with warm afternoons and cool evenings, and a complete lack of hot or cold spells. With no weather problems at harvest time, few are surprised with the exceptional quality of this vintage, which will likely go down as one of the best in recent years. Light, crisp, and highly aromatic, the warmer climate Alexander Valley fruit gives the wine ripe pear and melon character, while the ocean cooled Russian River fruit offers citrus, mineral, and traditional herbaceous qualities. Together, the two valleys make a classic Sonoma County sauvignon blanc that is fresh, lively, and will drink beautifully over the next 1 to 2 years.
Mouthwateringly juicy, featuring a zingy, crisp acidity, tart lemon, lime, apple and spicy pear flavors, with a pleasant bite of citrus peel on the finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Clean and crisp with grapefruit, lime and slate on the nose. There's apparent oak but it's in balance here with the melon, fig and almond flavors. Balances sweet and creamy qualities with tanginess. A very nice example.
